The single dumbest idea in the history of…dumb stuff

April 10, 2012

imageChristopher Johnson in the Midwest Conservative Journal isn’t impressed:

According to de Wesselow, each supposed sighting of the risen Christ was actually a sighting of the Shroud. He’s convinced it was what sparked the rapid spread of Christianity, as it was taken from Jerusalem to Galilee, then to Damascus, where he believes Paul saw it and became a Christian.

Let’s see.  Some women decided Jesus was alive “in the spirit,” whatever that means, just because they saw his burial cloth.  Saul of Tarsus changed from arch-persecutor of Christians to arch-Christian who completely changed the world because somebody showed him a picture of the dead Christ.

Right.

That might just be the single dumbest idea in the history of…dumb stuff.  That whole concept is so stupid that it’s…stupider than stuff that you thought was really stupid before this.  It’s so unbelievably idiotic that…it’s really, really idiotic.

    Dumb is, what dumb thinks, lol…Mr.Johnson is right, I guess de Wesselow didn’t think about Saul of Tarsus and his hate for Christians. It would have been more likely, if the Shroud was all he saw that he would have had the people who had shown him the Shroud arrested and stoned to death for breaking a serious Hebrew Law; (being in possession of a three times unclean burial cloth). Unless one believes the Shroud ‘appeared’ to Saul floating in the air and speaking to him…NOT.

    I think it’s pretty obvious to anyone with even a slight knowledge of scripture and of the Shroud, that de Wesselow has not done much research ‘himself’ and just made this all up from a very uninformed imagination…From all the media he’s getting though, I’m sure his goal of making a quick buck will be fullfilled.

    Certainly would have to agree that it is stupid beyond stupid.
